On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek visits the new American Writers Museum on opening day. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough and other were all on hand for the ribbon-cutting. Gary also had a chance to talk with acclaimed film director Terence Davies about his new biopic on Emily Dickinson, A QUIET PASSION. We’ll hear about a new origami installation at the Morton Arboretum. Plus, a conversation about an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art that celebrates women artists.
